A couple of us have been friends for a very long time, and have similar philosophies and goals. In spite of this, we had never actually all been in the same alliance. So when a certain nation leader (hello shavar) approached me stating that he was considering starting a new alliance and would the one I was in at the time consider a treaty, I asked a few little questions. Well, okay, more than a few, and not exactly little...but it’s all good because during the course of our conversations I decided I wanted to be a part of it too.

It is with pleasure that I announce the existence of The Javahouse League. We are a democratic alliance where all members are considered equal and have input on the direction we head in the future. Managers are elected to take care of the day to day tasks involved in running our group. Our goal is to create a place where we can hang out with each other and talk about whatever in a community of friends. A place like a local coffee shop.

The Charter of the Javahouse League
[/center][spoiler] The Javahouse League (tJL) is hereby established as a Cyber Nations alliance on August 24, 2012.

No protector?
